Sponsor Shout-Out: VGKids

Canton Film continues its week of thanking its sponsors by thanking VGKids.

The story of VGKids is pretty fascinating, You can read more about them on their website but basically, in 1997, at 17 years of age, James Marks started a vegetarian grocery store in Pontiac, Michigan called, well, The Vegetarian Grocer. There, he sold food and hosted punk rock shows in the basement. The store also sold records and zines, which further aligned the store with the local music scene. 

Though the store went under, he parlayed his reputation into a successful screen printing business that, at first, catered to that music scene but eventually branched out. His screen printing studio, VGKids (named for the Vegetarian Grocer Kids), maintained their DIY ethos while growing into a full-service screen printer. This means that they handle each order as if it were a personal project, with the same care that they would if they were working with their friends back in those DIY days.

VGKids prints posters, stickers, clothing, record jackets, stationary, and many other things to suit your needs.

Canton film thanks VGKids for their sponsorship!
